Web site


This web part helps ensure search engines spider as much content as possible without interference from the .NET ViewState.


This web part was created by Interesting for the Kentico Marketplace to help optimise Kentico sites search ranking.

As search engines read the source of pages from top to bottom it is important in .NET websites to remove or move the ViewState to ensure it does not adversely affect page ranking. To easily achieve this in Kentico solutions Interesting have created a web part to automatically move the ViewState to the bottom of the page source.

Similar funcionality is included in the default installation of Kentico CMS as of version 6.0.

Thanks a lot for this submission! From Kentico CMS version 6.0 ViewState will be placed at the bottom of the page source, so this web part really fills the gap for current and earlier versions of Kentico.
